    So is this a deal or is this the usual (free) price?
    Before you say oh no the deals only for Apple,
    it's actually already free on Android, as in no deal, just free!!
    Here's the Google Play link Geekbench 5 if you want to install.

      So here I am replying to my own comment😥😥, Geekbench 5 has just been released this week and it's free for a limited time on Apple and Android devices. So even if you download this app to an Android device then delete it again it should still stay in your Google Play My Apps account as a purchase so you can download it again at a later date for free when/if needed. I think that's how it works.

    So what’s the RRP for this app?

    350 points single core score on pixel 2XL. Wow! This test will kill my phone.

    For those wondering you can’t compare scores from version 4 to 5. They’ve re-baselined the scores and version 4 in my case reported significantly a higher score than 5 for my device.

    50% off Desktop versions also from Geekbench website.

    great deal for iPhone. Been looking for long time. Last time I missed the free promotion.

    Geekbench 5 is free and Geekbench 5 Pro is paid. Isn't this how free and paid versions are released?

    Geekbench 4 used a Microsoft Surface Book with an Intel Core i7-6600U processor as its baseline, with a score of 4,000 points.
    Geekbench 5 uses a Dell Precision 3430 with a Core i3-8100 processor as its baseline, with a score of 1,000 points.

    Therefore the points calculated are different hence cannot compare them directly.

    Thought the usual version is always free and you only pay for the pro version?

    What a useless app.

    Added to my library.

      Not if you test dozens of devices like I do :p

      Frustrating that scores aren't comparible across v4 and v5 though.

      •  

        You might mean v3 or v4.

        If its comparable, then you don't have to upgrade or purchase the new version :)

        If you make some form of profit from it, then I get it, otherwise..how does it benefit you to know numbers and percentages - your phone is either fast enough or not.

    Although Geekbench touts its cross platform comparability, this app is seriously iffy when comparing across platforms (which I've seen people often do to prove the superiority of their Apple A series CPUs compared to Intel/AMD chips).

    As an example, according to Geekbench 5 a 2015 era ~5W TDP 1.84GHz Dual Core A9 in the iPhone SE outperforms a 65W TDP 3.6GHz Quad Core i3-8100 Desktop Processor from 2018 in multi-core benchmarks (1011 vs 1000 points multicore). I know Apple make excellent mobile chips, but this result does not make sense at all

    I call complete BS on these results and would only use this app to compare devices on one platform (e.g. one generation of iPhone vs another generation of iPhone)

    •  

      Agree with you, although maybe not to the "complete BS" extent:

      while it doesn’t paint a perfect picture of the difference in performance between an Intel chip running Windows, an Android phone with a Qualcomm processor, and an iPad with Apple’s custom silicon, it is one of the best synthetic benchmarks available to at least attempt to make such a comparison.

    Useless App.
    Geeekbench =Apple Bench
    Your Intel/AMD High end CPUs always loses.
    In fact they smash those Mobile Socs.
